About Green & Yellow Shape

On a shaped white panel, Aron Hill plays with geometric form and bright colours—a lime green fan shape, a lemon-yellow gum drop shape, grounding angular lines in black to create a fresh, contemporary painting. To add interest and reflective highlights, the entire piece is rimmed in gold leaf. Hill’s artwork reflects both the modernist influences of Canadian Jack Bush and the shaped colour field paintings of American artist, Ellsworth Kelly.

“The idea of pureness in terms of colour and shape and that hard edge has always appealed to me.” Aron Hill

They obtained a BFA in Interdisciplinary Studies from the Alberta College of Art and Design and their MFA from Goldsmiths College, University of London in 2006. They have exhibited across Canada and in Dubai. Hill’s work is held in private and corporate collections.
